Was a little chalk drawing on the abandoned road behind our house.

And when I say little, I mean big.

Six feet by six feet big. (total guess-timate)


Although we dont 'celebrate' earth day… I figured it was a good chance to talk about the world, water, land, continents, all that fun 'global' stuff.


Audrey wanted to color pink all over South America. 

But I got to thinking. 

There was more then just a  geography lesson in this… there was a life lesson.

"Shout to the LORD, all the world let us sing."


And we did.

What did you do for Earth Day?

  1. You have an abandoned road behind your house? That’s cool! Does that mean your kids can ride their bikes up and down it and not have to worry about cars or anything?

  2. Ha ha! I love the little blue bottom. 🙂 That always seems to happen to my youngest when she gets to use chalk. Loved the chalk drawing…we watched the rain.

  3. Aw, that is so cool! I love how you used that teaching opportunity! Lovin’ the pics, too. =-)

    Hi from Houston! I was trying to find a way to email you from your site and couldn’t find it. We are coming to Mpls (Anoka) in August to throw a 50th anniversary party for my inlaws. I wondered if you sold the bride/groom cookies or was thinking of even doing cupcakes or cake balls. Anyway … if you don’t, perhaps you could point me to someone who makes these that we could buy. Thanks!
